Purely the most amazing sound I've ever heard, ruined me for all other audio setups.

Summary: Combined with the right receiver/amp, this sounds great. Originally I had a sony and it held these back light years. Brings a tear to my eye that I had to leave it in a storage locker on the opposite coast, but it does have some weight to check in plain baggage, and I couldn't resell it because my pet Squirrel gnawed on the edges, but they sound the same and some black coloring makes the chewed parts unnoticeable except up close.
Summary: These were on sale a few months back for $350/pair. Too good of a deal to pass up and I now have 4 of them operating as L/R fronts and surrounds. definitely overkill for surrounds but they sound SO clear and crisp. Great purchase when they're on sale.
Summary: I have had the speakers for several months now and love them. If you want excellent sound and can not afford to spend a thousand dollars (or more) on one speaker, this is a great alternative. I tend to listen to rock, country and classical all of which sound wonderful. The classical comes out crisp and full and while listening to rock, the base is solid and steady, but not overpowering.
Summary: This is a very good pair of speakers. You can use them as front or surround speakers. The sound is really of high quality especially when paired with other JBL "L" series speakers. I got 2 pairs and paired it with a pair of L890s. Awesome! It can compete with those more higher end speakers that are 3 or more times more expensive.
Summary: My system has two JBL-L8400P subwoofers, a JBL LC2 center channel, JBL L820 left and right speakers, older JBL wall mounted bookshelf speakers for side surrounds, and Klipsch in-ceiling speakers for back surrounds. I'm powering things with a Denon AVR-X4000 receiver I know there are plenty of audiophiles out there that look down on mass produced speakers that sell for reasonable amounts, but, as a former professional soundman, I think my setup sounds great.
Summary: I used these for my home theater. They are a quality speaker at a value price. They are not the most visually appealing hanging on the walls but look fine to me. They sound great. I found a matching JBL center speaker to complete the set.
